Re: Hobart 2012 - Return of the Chak!!!

When I saw someone mention "retirement", I feared the worst. Thank god it's "only" a normal injury/tiredness/not quite there yet physically-thing. Get well soon/rest up, Anna!

Re: Hobart 2012 - Return of the Chak!!!

WTA says it was just cramping.

Phew.

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.

Re: Hobart 2012 - Return of the Chak!!!

I set my alarm to wake up early today to hopefully catch some of the match before I went to work. I guess they were late starting though so I didn't get to see any. I was following the livescores on my phone so I wasn't too happy to see Anna retired.

Thank goodness it's only cramp. I couldn't bear the thought of her getting another bad injury right now.

I guess this is only to be expected. She's not played competitively for so long and perhaps she didn't expect to win two matches and get very close in a third in only her first week back.

Anna drew Dokic in R1 of the AO.

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.

Re: Hobart 2012 - Return of the Chak!!!

Very tough draw to be honest. Bartoli will be waiting in R2 if she wins her 1st match.

Re: Hobart 2012 - Return of the Chak!!!

Anna is better now than 09 and Dokic 2012 is much worse than THAT Dokic. I'm confident.

Re: Hobart 2012 - Return of the Chak!!!

Are we not having a separate Aussie Open thread?

I figured this was like the tourneys of the year thread.

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.

Re: Hobart 2012 - Return of the Chak!!!

i assumed we would make a new thread for each tournament, then others can have a chance to make a thread and make up a fun title. so oz open one is upto one of you to make.

as for the cramps, her body just needs to harden up to tournament play again. it is not an injury just something that happens (kim and serena both got injuries after being for ages the start of this year, so i will count chak fortunate) when you have't played matches.

will discuss the oz open draw ect, when someone makes the thread
